Dutchman Eddy Van Der Pijl (Settima-Gosselongo, IT) makes the Italian dream come true

Marco Van Basten, Ruud Gullit & Frank Rijkaard … the famous 3 Dutchmen who conquered the world of football with AC Milan some decades ago, now meet their equal in pigeon racing with Eddy Van Der Pijl…
Living under the smoke of Milan, the Dutchman is the sensation of Italy with National acebirds and Olympiad stars – a true sensation in the boot of Europe.
Dutchman Eddy Van der Pijl lives in Italy for over 20 years. He started his racing career in The Netherlands but than had a longer period without pigeons in his life. He started racing again when he moved to Italy and of course, due to his nationality and background, he brought the best of The Netherlands and Belgium into his lofts … pigeons from only the best such as Gaby Vandenabeele, Gerard Koopman, Dirk Van Dijck, Willem De Bruijn and recently Embregts-Theunis with excellent children of the superbreeder Super Rossi, one of the best current breeders in Europe.
 
These strains brought Eddy van der Pijl very quickly to the (Inter)national top. Eddy showed the best of Belgium and Holland can also make a difference in Southern European condition … with a very warm climate, on both sides of the country the sea and mountains in the middle. This makes it an extremely difficult territory to race. Only the very best pigeons with strength and endurance will make it to the National top in Italy and other well-known strains did fail on this difficult territory. Under these conditions pigeons need to perform on a weekly basis and therefore are hardened also for the most important One Loft races around the world. Eddy Van Der Pijl proved so when he won the OLR European Championship in Mira Portugal in 2016 with the first ace pigeon under very difficult circumstances.

After winning a large number of National titles and participating at the Olympiad sport exhibition in Brussels and Poznan, Eddy Van Der Pijl now auctions the best of what has flown in Italy in auction on PIPA. Including the Olympiad 2019 birds themselves and National ace pigeons … all descending from Belgian and Dutch top birds and they all have proven their outstanding quality.
